Let's see a big turnout, folks. It's not too often a truly crazed comics artist is rediscovered and has a hardcovered book published of his work.

I SHALL DESTROY ALL THE CIVILIZED PLANETS (Fantagraphics, $19.95)
With fanatic zeal, Karasik spent years tracking down and archiving the almost-forgotten comic book tales of Fletcher Hanks. They are uncanny tales from the golden age of comics, where the heroes have a penchant for poetic justice. Then Karasik gives us his powerful personal narrative of meeting Hanks’s son and hearing about why the father disappeared from cartooning.
